I'm very pleased with the app. Simple to use and very helpful for me to stay the course.
So simple, huge database of foods, intuitive macro tracking. It just *works*.
What happened? Had a neat feature in the app in which you could go to any meal (breakfast, lunch or dinner) and select foods and then reclassify the group of foods for any meal. I find that I have eaten the same foods for lunch and dinner and it's easy to select it in lunch and then classify it as dinner. Most recent update now gives you a message that the food will be deleted when I try to change.. 1 step forward 2 steps back with this app. Please don't screw this up and force me to go use Lose It.. *****Dev immediately responded***** Faith restored! Thank you!
At 1st it worked really well. But after about 3 weeks of use it became very slow. It did not make a difference if I used a Wi-Fi connection or my phone's data plan. I'm not sure if they put out a new release since I originally downloaded the program but It now takes me about 5 minutes to enter my meal information. Update**** This app works very well. They fixed all of the issues related that I mentioned above. It is very easy to use and very helpful in keeping track of my macros. Good job guys.
I've been using this app for years and years, it helped me lose 50 lbs! I still use it when I feel like I'm not making good choices and to get back on track. My only complaint is that because not as many people use it, it tends to have a smaller database of food than other apps. It's easy enough to add foods, but nice if it's already there.
Update: Literally the day after I posted my original review, the issue I was complaining about has disappeared. Thanks to the devs for responding so quickly! I highly recommend this app. I have been using it for years and it has helped me eat healthier and lose and maintain my weight immensely. Original review: I would give 5 stars, except for this insufferable bug where it keeps going back to the previous day when I try to save stuff sometimes. It's been like this for months, why is this not fixed??
